After a four-month deployment off the coast of Somalia participating in the European Union counter-piracy Operation ‘Atalanta’, the LPD ‘Galicia’ arrived at the port of Dubai (UAE) where she welcomed the Spanish Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates Mr. Antonio Álvarez.

The Ambassador attended a briefing on the ship’s capabilities and the current situation of Operation ‘Atalanta’. During her deployment the LPD was the flagship of this EU mission.

The presence of the ‘Galicia’ in Dubai also served to promote and support the activities of the Spanish Embassy in that nation striving to foster and strengthen the presence of Spain in the political, cultural and economic life of the UAE.
